In case you missed it, Mike Ilitch died on Friday, February 10. Ilitch not only owned the Red Wings, but also the Detroit Tigers, Little Caesars (and those addicting Hot-N-Ready pizzas), the Fox Theatre, and Olympia Entertainment.



The Red Wings play tonight at Joe Louis Arena against rivals St. Louis Blues (shout out Riverfront Times!) at 8 p.m.

There is a public visitation at the Fox Theatre Grand Lobby today hosted by the Ilitch family. The visitation goes from noon-8 p.m.
